A Break

For those of you who don't know, Chris and I will graduate in December and will have gone year-round (4 semesters in a row) when that time comes. We finished up the Winter semester on April 9th and are now into our first day of the Spring semester (our 3rd semester in a row). I am somewhat saddened at the fact that I have to go to school during the summer because I've never had to do that before. Summers were always a literal break from school, but I don't get that this summer. However, this means that Chris and I will graduate in December instead of next April and I'm sure when the time comes I will be happy I "skipped" my summer vacation.

Anyways, we went to Provo to see Jenny and David and their kids for most of the break and we spent a few short days in Moab with my family. We had time to relax for a day or two and then we were off to the mall, Jumping Jacks, jeeping :), the tulip festival, Cabela's, Costco, and various other activities. We love getting to spend time with family and we are so grateful for the hospitality shown to us when we visit.

Here are a few pictures and videos from when Chris and I went jeeping. Because of this experience Chris is now convinced we need some type of four-wheeling machine so he can go trail riding whenever he wants! Needless to say, he LOVED it! We were both a little sore the next day from being jolted around, but it was so worth it in the end!

I agree, you will be happy in December.

So, you were at Thanksgiving Point and Cabelas. Both of which I can see from my house. Did you wave?

I bet you are so excited to be so close to finishing. That always feels fantastic. Except it always seems like the last month is the hardest....

I'm still almost 2 full semesters away and I'm struggling now with finishing! I feel like I've been in school FOREVER and that I'll never finish!! Crazy!

Okay, so when I got your comment you just made on my blog, and it said it was made by "Nichris"...I totally didn't know who it was. I was like, "I hope this is not some creepy foreign man that is stocking me on my blog!" Then I clicked on it and saw you and your husband! I was so relieved! I just thought it was funny, so I had to share!
